Windows Phone Marketplace not updated yet, TextTwist 2 trapped in word game prison [Updated]

TextTwist 2 not available yet

As you may have noticed by now, this week’s Xbox Live release, TextTwist 2, hasn’t shown up on the Marketplace. Nor has an older game’s price dropped as the Xbox Live Deal of the Week. It’s frustrating for folks like me who want to grab TextTwist and get their spelling on.

A little background info: the Windows Phone Marketplace usually updates during the wee hours of Wednesday morning in the US, though the actual update time is far more erratic than the Xbox 360 Marketplace. I’ve stopped staying up for it. Occasionally – maybe three or four times a year – the mobile Marketplace doesn’t update until later in the day (most recently in September). But it has always updated by Wednesday night, so we shouldn’t have to wait too terribly long for the new game and sale game to appear.

Speaking of the sale game, Microsoft didn’t announce it in advance like they usually do. Rumor has it that Flight Control may be the Deal of the Week, but nobody knows for sure. Keep checking back at WPCentral and we’ll let you know as soon as the Marketplace update goes live!

Update: Flight Control's price has dropped to $1.99 and TextTwist 2 is live. As for the delay, perhaps the snow in Washington mucked things up for our friends at microsoft. Thanks for the comments, everybody!

You do realize we are in the middle of a snow storm here right?  Alot of people at Microsoft are not going in to work today.

I was not aware of that. Thanks for the heads up. :)

I think the lightning round with no hints may be glitched. I can't seem to get it. Is there a way to turn off hints.
